Pornhub Blocks Access From Utah

When people in Utah visit the adult website Pornhub they’re now greeted by a message from pornstar Cherie DeVille telling them they can’t access the site. As a result, some residents in Utah are not happy. “State Sen. Todd Weiler picked up the phone Monday morning and received an angry, profanity-laced tirade from a Utah man upset that he could no longer access Pornhub, thanks to a bill the senator sponsored.” Unsurprisingly, the country with the most visits to their site (by far) is the United States, with Utah among the states with the highest traffic. Incidentally, the most searched for term from Utah is “Mormon/Mormon porn”. Go figure.

In response to a new law that requires porn sites to verify users’ ages, Pornhub has completely disabled its websites for people located in Utah.

As of today, anyone accessing Pornhub from a Utah-based IP address doesn’t see the Pornhub homepage, but instead is met with a video of Cherie DeVille, adult performer and member of the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee, explaining that they won’t be able to visit the site.

“As you may know, your elected officials in Utah are requiring us to verify your age before allowing you access to our website,” DeVille says. “While safety and compliance are at the forefront of our mission, giving your ID card every time you want to visit an adult platform is not the most effective solution for protecting our users, and in fact, will put children and your privacy at risk.”
